What happened in Rimini

Which Italian, when talking about Rimini, doesn't think of the Rimini full of people in the 80s, the huge beach with very soft sand, the nightclubs where we had a lot of fun...then Rimini remained like this, almost waiting, continuing to be a beautiful holiday location, but almost hanging in time waiting for someone to trigger the fuse again and start the racing car again. Finally something has happened, a great administration of young and willing people who love their city has arrived and has started the change. And he blew on those embers that remained under the ashes! Rimini is alive again and finally beautiful! I don't want to describe the city with all its monuments, which I will list shortly, which you can easily find online, but the intention of these few lines is only one: one day, while chatting, a Swiss friend told me that so much in Italy everything remains the same, everything is still and nothing changes. I can proudly say that my beautiful city has changed and at least for once for the better. Today it is an elegant city with a wonderful historic center on a human scale, where you can breathe an ancient history. It is a city that focuses on the future today more than ever, in continuous movement, even if I believe it has never stopped. A completely renovated seaside area, a modern city that knows how to get back into the game, with roots in traditions, including culinary ones. Enjoy a walk in the historic center... you will go from ancient Rome to the Renaissance in just a few steps. To end with the Dolce Vita years. Arch of Augustus from 27 BC Bridge of Tiberius from 21 AD Borgo San Giuliano from the 11th century Castel Sismondo from 1437 Malatesta Temple from 1450 Galli Theater from 1857, completely rebuilt and functional since 2018 Grand Hotel of 1908, a national monument since 1994 Cinema Fulgor of 1920 Finally, a thought for those who come to Rimini for a beach holiday, advice on the musts not to be missed, to say once home "who would have thought it!":
